Tame Valley PCN Patient Group begins

In November 2023 our Tame Valley Patient Participation Group (TVPPG) held its first meeting at Bredbury Medical Centre. 

Practices from across the Tame Valley area were represented by volunteer Patient Group Members, who came to hear more about the PCN, how it works to bring better services to local practices, and how the patient voice can be heard.

Our patient representatives were able to hear about different services available, and how PCN staff are supporting local GP teams to deliver specialist care. We also heard from Andrew, a patient at one of our practices, who works to make the patient voice heard at higher levels within the NHS. 

The PCN heard how patients are not aware of all the services on offer, and gave us a mandate to improve information in waiting rooms, when staff members contact patients directly for the first time, and via a website.

The group meets once a quarter at practices across the PCN areas.  If you would like to be part of the Tame Valley PCN Patient Participation Group, and are a patient registered at one of the practices in the Tame Valley Area, please speak to your local Practice Manager, or contact us using the form on the Get Involved page






There are no vacancies here at present.
